Tuition and Payment

Tuition and Payment

Tuition Rate

Through the Advance College Project (ACP) students can get full college credits at a substantial savings compared to standard on-campus rates.

Subject to the approval of the Indiana University (IU) Board of Trustees, ACP students pay a special off-campus undergraduate resident tuition rate that is lower than the per-credit-hour rate on any of the IU campuses because ACP students do not use campus facilities and services.

Tuition Schedule

Tuition charged is determined by taking the current $25 per-credit-hour rate and multiplying it by the number of credit hours in which the student is enrolling. ACP students are not subject to a flat fee schedule. ACP students pay the resident tuition charge regardless of residency status.

Tuition is waived for ACP students eligible for free or reduced lunch upon confirmation by high school guidance counselor.

Tuition Benefit, formerly known as Fee Courtesy, is granted to full-time university employees. Disabled veteran's benefits may apply toward ACP tuition.


Paper billing statements (via U.S. Mail) are sent to ACP students. Indiana University generates bursar statements electronically and provides the option of Web payments for paying tuition and other charges to students with IU IT accounts.  A student can view their bill electronically by going to and log in with their IU account.

The IU bursar bill notification is sent electronically to students' IU e-mail account, if one exists. Students can create access for parent(s) to receive billing notifications, print bill copies, and make electronic payments, and we strongly recommend that you do so. If you have further questions, please contact Student Central on Union by email at or call (812) 855-6500.

Tuition Benefit Information
Dependent children of full-time IU faculty and staff are entitled to Tuition Benefit. A Tuition Benefit form must be on file for each semester during which the student is enrolled and should be completed in advance of registration. IU employees may apply online at the University Human Resources Website.

Child of Veteran and Public Safety Officer Benefit Information
Educational benefits are available through the Child of Veteran and Public Safety Officer (CVO) Supplemental Grant Program. Visit the website to see if you qualify, or call them by phone at (317) 232-2350 or (888) 528-4719 for more information. Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and CVO applications must be on file.

Financial Responsibility
A student who is admitted and enrolled in an IU course through the ACP program agrees to pay the tuition rate for each course and should understand that the enrollment creates a binding legally enforceable contract.
Important to know: Non-payment of tuition or failure to earn a passing grade for a course does not constitute a drop or withdrawal from the course.  In addition, the student will still be obligated to pay the course tuition.
